    Trying to Nap on Concerta
    An_249444 posted:
    I've been on Concerta ER for as long as I can remember. As of last year, my psychiatrist has prescribed that I try and take naps when I can. However, I have a problem trying to settle down and take a 20 min to a 2hr nap (if I'm lucky) while the Concerta ER is in my system. Does anyone have any insight as to how I can get myself to override the drug so to speak in my system so that I can take a nap during the day?
    Luckily I don't work much. I am a part-time stagehand.
    Also, I do suffer from Clinical Depression. The symptoms of which don't help my case. (I have been having an extremely bad episode of my depression currently being handled by my psychiatrist and part of the process of getting out is trying to get my sleep cycle back on track. I can't seem to break this any more and have no idea what to do!) Help please!!
